    Yep agreed, but when you look at where we are now, and the injuries and options, were you not encouraged by his performance?

    It was very encouraging. Looks by far the better bet over Bellerin at the moment. Remains to be seen if he can be the answer at RB though. Unlikely, but you can never write off players of that age. He might have been held back by his own mentality. If he's set free he could go up levels if the potential is there, and there is a lot to like bout his game.

    Thought he was good today considering what he's asked to do. I'm not sure how anyone could think differently?

    Has barely put a foot wrong in the new system Arteta has him in.

    Looks much better now he’s defending on the front foot when off the ball, and tucking into midfield while on it. That’s pretty much the opposite of what Emery asked of him.

    I’m optimistic there’s a decent player in there, if he’s managed carefully.

    I like the way this RB role has been crafted for him, I can even get behind it - as much as I still think it's not where he'll reach his full potential. It's working and he's performing very well. He looks great when he tucks in and has played some really nice balls down the channels aswell.

    Defensively, he's winning a lot more duels now, and his body shape looks far more secure than before.

    What a solid defensive preformed keeping Guy who scored 9 goals from 12 is not easy. Well done AMN

    Yeah, Bellerin will have to get back into the side on merit if he ever gets match fit again. AMN has grown into the right-back position and looks rather good.

    He had a monster game.

    Dare I say it, I might be completely wrong about him at RB.

    (I still want to see him in midfield, but he's looking comfortable now, which is very good).

    Hector can now become a full time environmental vegan feminist super model and leave the football to Ainsley!

    I really like this guy, hopefully this is just the beginning for him. Cautiously optimistic.

    Some sloppy passes today that could have been costly but he looks so much more secured and assured defensively.
